I have been experimenting with SMIL and scripting. Currently,
SMIL Recommendation doesn't have anything how to include
scripts into SMIL files, so I have created script tags in another
namespace, containing the ECMAScript. I don't know if this
will be the way to implement scripting in SMIL.
For instance, to catch mouse pressed event for an image:

<img src="test.gif" dur="4s">
   <ev:onevent type="mousedown">
      <ev:script> ... ECMAScript... </ev:script>

This currently works in the X-Smiles browser, but it most
probably will not be the standard way to write scripts.
But if you want to start experimenting, you can use it.
